Patriots sign veteran WR Jenkins

The SportsXchange

The New England Patriots continued an overhaul of their receiving corps, signing former Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Michael Jenkins.

Jenkins hauled in 40 passes last season and has averaged 40 receptions per season over the past three years for the Vikings and Atlanta Falcons.

The former first-round pick has a chance to make the Patriots because they're thin at wide receiver, with Danny Amendola and Donald Jones currently on the team's depth chart.

Wes Welker (free agent) and Brandon Lloyd (released) were the Patriots' starting wide receivers last season.
